Media reported that MediaTek may soon launch the Helio G-Series Eight Core SoC for the entry-level market. With two Cortex-A75 plus six Cortex-A55 CPUs and mali-G52 MC2 GPU core, the company hopes the new chipset will deliver powerful gaming performance for affordable smartphones. In an interview with Android Authority, Yenchi Lee said the upcoming entry-level chipset is lower than the G90 Series in terms of power consumption and performance.

For the mass market, it is even less positioned than the G90T. Although this has not been confirmed, the new SoC is likely to be the Helio G70 on the Red Rice 9.
The company said vaguely that we would soon hear about the new SoC, but did not give any hardware specifications or a precise schedule.
Based on a recent leak, it will be an octa-core chipset with two Cortex-A75 plus six Cortex-A55 CPU, Mali-G52 MC2 GPU core.
Previously, MediaTek pioneered the SoC design of three clusters, dividing the kernel into small, medium and large. But on the latest Sky1000/800 series chipsets, only a two-cluster approach is used.
Of course, the company hasn’t completely abandoned the three-cluster CPU architecture, and we’re expected to see new products in the near future. As for the g-Series SoC release schedule, it is not currently known.
Interestingly, rival Qualcomm said at a summit last month that it would provide GPU updates through the Google Play Store to get ahead of system graphics driver updates and bug fixes released by device manufacturers.
When it comes to the cool new feature, MediaTek says it’s working on the same technology. It is trying to see if it can do this in the future, but there is no timetable, after all, it needs partners to help.
